NFL Stadium Report
Kansas City

By Rod Marr, Seattle Times

I just returned from Kansas City. Wow! don't know if you saw any of the game, or heard about it, but we had a one hour delay during the middle of the game because of torrential rains and severe thunderstorms. it was by far the WORST shooting experience I've ever had.

Suffice to say, that all three of my bodies went out, and both of my EF autofocus lenses were having troubles. also, back on the subject of toughest stadiums to work in, even though the light at arrowhead is terrific at night (solid 1/500 at f/2.8 at 800 asa), and even though the stadium is grass, and even though Chiefs games are fun to cover, this is the ONLY stadium in the world i know of that permits the cheerleaders to go wherever they want to, including in from of the photographers line, and even in front of the network tv line.

However, I must add that this has always been the case there. That city must be the mecca of cheerleaders, 'cuz I've never seen them have the run of the land the way they do at Arrowhead. It's quite amazing, if you think about it. Of course, I like Pittsburgh, where they know real football, and don't even have cheerleaders!
